Back Window for 1989 450 SEL

I had a tree limb fall and shatter the back window of my 1980 450 SEL.  I'm having a hard time sourcing a replacement in Austin, TX.

Does anyone have any advice on how to get one?

Check out local pick n pulls.  Here is a bunch of "280" models, one shown in Dallas TX, not sure if this one is a 116, the site is a bit sparse with info so no VIN number unfortunately.  Also it's been there a while so likely it's picked over.  I'm guessing all 116's share the same back and front windows:

Locally is best, but if you cant find one, I have one available in Colorado. I have no idea how to ship it....

It's heated version, but the wires are broken.

While on the subject. Items 5 or 40 - is this the plastic material that goes around the perimeter of the glass before it is inserted into the rubber seal?  One would need @4meters of it.

???  OMG, I can't make out half this stuff.  Never heard of the 'plastic material' before and as far as I can recall it's not referenced in the famous YouTube video.  Can you describe in more detail what it is and what it's for?  I'm gearing up for rear window gasket replacement so this has me nervous.  Thanks and cheers,

I took my rear window out a little while ago. There was a thin fairly hard plastic channel @1/8-3/16th" deep that went all the way around the glass. It flaked/peeled off.  I'll try for a picture later.

This is all on my glass rack, there is another rear window just under this one and another on the shelf below.  Just look at the edge of the top one/

Great, thanks.  Obviously it needs to be flexible enough to curve around the glass.  So I need to source 4m of that channel stuff I guess.  Cheers,

I found rear glass from a vehicle that's being parted out.  The guy says it's from a 1973 450 SEL.  Does anyone know if it'll fit a 1980 450 SEL?
